We guide students towards an understanding of the questions that drive contemporary psychology research, rather than focusing purely on the historical facts. Our world-class research portfolio, and with lectures delivered by researchers, gives students direct access to the latest thinking in the discipline.
Psychology at Bristol embraces an experimental framework that focuses largely, but not exclusively, on the importance of hypothesis-driven, testable ideas to understanding mind and behaviour.
